For centuries women have undertaken extreme measures in an attempt to maintain youthful radiance – take Madame Rowley’s ‘toilet mask’ for example, a contraption from the Victorian era that would be strapped to a woman’s head overnight, three times a week. Made with flexible India rubber, the “face glove” was filled with various substances, salves and bleaches thought to treat major skin problems from clogged pores to discolorations. Mostly it was designed to encourage sweating all night long, with the idea that perspiration would soften and clarify the skin, but I think it just caused nightmares.
Thankfully today’s facial devices have come a long way from the Michael Myers slasher movie style mask, and since SkinStore is turning 20 (HOORAY!) we’re celebrating the evolution of beauty tools! Here are a selection of our favorites:
